Hey, crocheters, my new pattern is listed in my Etsy shop! Be careful, though. Mandalas can be addicting wink

About

Crafting a Business, Sustainably

In 1996, I discovered polymer clay. By 2001, I was staying home with my toddler son and running a polymer clay book store on the internet. I also sold much of my own work in polymer.

Eleven years later, excited about my newfound sewing, knitting, and crochet skills, burned out on the mindless stuffing of books into envelopes, and uninterested in the level of production work that would be required in order to make a living off of my handmades, I closed that shop.

Now I find myself in the exciting position of writing my own patterns and tutorials. I get the enjoyment of creating a new product, without the drudgery of having to make 100 of them. I can write an eBook about the process, and share it with far more people than I could if I were selling the finished product.

eBooks allow me to stretch my creative muscles. They allow me to indulge in the techy stuff I find such fun, too: photo editing and ebook layout, to name a few.

This is a much more sustainable business model for me, and I am happy to bring it to Etsy.

I appreciate your support!
